Reward Offered For Information About Brown County Church Vandalism

Last updated on Monday, July 17, 2017

(NASHVILLE) - A $5,000 reward is being offered after three churches were vandalized in Brown County.

Brown County authorities are increasing patrols.

Officials believe the incidents are connected to similar church break-ins in Bartholomew County.

The Brown County police say the first break-in was in late June, when vandals stole several items and dumped trash throughout a church.

A cross was turned upside down and liquid was poured out in the pews during another incident.

Authorities say the actions are similar to break-ins in Bartholomew County where Bible was set on fire at Ohio Chapel United Methodist Church, windows were smashed and the phrase "God works in mysterious ways" was written in the guest book.
